The full depth of the RF266AERS refrigerator with the freezer drawer fully extended is 54-1/2"; the depth with the refrigerator doors open 90-degrees is 47-3/4". Samsung recommends leaving another 2" clearance behind the unit to allow sufficient air flow for the cooling system to work properly and most efficiently.

If you find that you do not have the full 56-1/2" clearance needed to be able to open the freezer drawer the whole way, you may want to consider Samsung's 23 cubic foot counter depth model RFG237AARS. The full depth needed to extend the freezer drawer and allow for the 2" clearance in the rear is only 48-1/4" for this model.

Thank you for your interest in Samsung!

Question

Depth when doors are taken off - will it fit through a 31 1/2" wide doorway?

The doorway to my kitchen is 31 1/2 " wide. If doors are taken off, will the refridgerator fit through? The Pdf from Samsung from this model says that the "depth without hinges" is 28 7/8" - does that mean with the doors take off? Thanks for your help.

The RF266AERS will fit through your 31-1/2" doorway if you remove the doors and drawer. Without these, the unit's case depth is 29-1/8". Instructions for removing the refrigerator doors are in the User Manual, which can be downloaded from Samsung's website. There is actually an easier way to remove the bottom freezer drawer that does not even require any tools; just follow these steps: 1. Open the freezer drawer and remove the upper "Auto Pull-Out" freezer drawer by lifting it up and pulling it toward you. 2. Locate the white plastic release buttons located toward the rear of the metal freezer drawer railing on both the right and left side. 3. Pull the freezer drawer out while pressing the release buttons (you may need a second person to help with this step). The entire drawer and railing should pull out together. 4. To reassemble, just align and slide the drawer rail back onto the track, being sure to push it in the entire way so the buttons lock back in place, then replace the upper bin, too. Thank you for the question! Ms. Samsung

The ice bin in the RF266AERS measures approximately 9" wide by 5" high by 14" deep, which would hold 2-3/4 gallons of liquid, or about 7-8 pounds of ice cubes.

The RF266AERS may take up to 24 hours after installation to reach the temperature and conditions necessary for ice production to begin. After that, it should produce ice every 90 minutes, under ideal conditions (freezer remains closed, water pressure is at the required 20~125 psi, and the freezer temperature is set to the recommended -2°F). To speed up ice production, press the Power Freeze button on the control panel.

what are the outside dementions of RFG237AAUP

The outside dimensions of the RFG237 are 35-3/4" wide by 69-3/4" high with hinges by 24-3/16" deep without doors, or 30-1/2" deep with doors and handles.

Samsung recommends leaving at least 2" above and behind, and 1" on each side, of this refrigerator to allow sufficient air flow for the cooling system to work properly and most efficiently. If either side will open into a full wall, then a minimum clearance of 3-3/4" is required on that side for the handles to clear so the door can open 90 degrees.

The RF266AERS has a lever located above the icebucket that detects when the bucket is full and turns the icemaking function off until ice is removed.

The water dispenser in this model is located on the inside left wall of the refrigerator compartment. I've attached a picture indicating its location.

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. Is it possible your refrigerator is in "Cooling Off" (Demo) mode? If the lights are on but the refrigerator and freezer are both not cooling, then it is likely in Cooling Off mode. To cancel this mode, press the Power Freeze and Freezer buttons at the same time for 3 seconds until a chime sounds and the compressor turns on.

If the refrigerator is cooling but the freezer is not, or vice versa, then your refrigerator will require service. I would suggest you contact your Best Buy sales associates for assistance with this new unit.

The RF266AERS, like other Samsung refrigerators, cannot be ordered without the icemaker which is factory-installed. If you do not wish to use this feature, you may choose to turn it off by pressing the "ICE OFF" button on the control panel and using the ice bin storage in the freezer for another purpose.

Thank you for the question,
